Crossroads Milestone Pinot Noir

$22.99 $16.99

The moderate and dry temperatures of summer ripened the fruit beautifully with harvest commencing around 7h April. Once at the winery, each batch of Pinot Noir was dealt with individually to emphasize the unique characteristics of each vineyard block. Once the primary fermentations were complete, all batches were put into French oak barriques of which twenty percent were new. Once in barrel, the wine was chilled and stored for the winter. With the onset of spring, the barrels were warmed to encourage natural malolactic fermentation. Following seven months in oak the wine was racked from barrel, blended before fining and then bottled.

Description

Pinot Noir is one of our favourite wines. Recognising that this variety develops distinctive qualities in Marlborough compared to Hawke’s Bay, we sourced this particular wine from our sister vineyard in Marlborough and gave it the Crossroads treatment.

Alluring with a distinct fragrance of strawberries and aromatic red fruits, this is a very focused, yet supple Pinot Noir. Once in the mouth, darker fruits emerge to bring depth and intrigue to the mid-palate. The tannins are very fine-grained, leading to a long, elegant finish.
